It is incumbent upon psychoanalysts, especially those in specialist centres, as many of us now are, to study the current scene as carefully as we can and to act constructively to the best of our ability. I believe that, if we do not innovate in regard to our own roles, our mental health centres will shrivel and hence the welfare and development movements will be impoverished.
